Govinda, which translates to “The One Who Brings Pleasure,” has a staff comprised of top quality chefs and managers, each with decades of experience. The culinary lineup includes husband and wife, Joynitai and Jamuna Dasadhikari, who have worked for other Govinda’s for over 20 years. Their team will also include Amar Singh Bishwakarma, who was the executive chef at multiple five star restaurants in India.
Although Govinda’s actually opened in July of last year, this celebration is meant to open the doors further to the entire Houston community. Govinda’s will have a special event this Saturday as a kick off to the Festival of Colors, also known as Holi, which is an Indian based celebration that ushers in the spring season.
The opening will include musical entertainment, family fun activities, and a vegetarian lunch buffet.
The lunch special on this day will be “buy one get one free” which is a great excuse to bring your friends.
Govinda’s is planning on doing their own organic farming to bring in fresh produce, and to encourage their philosophy of “simple living, high thinking” into what you eat.
The new restaurant will be open seven days a week for lunch: 11 a.m. – 2:30 p.m., and for dinner: 5 p.m. – 9 p.m.
Some of the chef recommended dishes include: Saag Paneer, Paneer Makhani, Okra, Vegetable Korma, Vegetable Kofta, Dal Makhani, Chana Masala, Pindi Chana, Baingan Bharatha (Eggplant Masala), and BBQ Tofu.
Govinda’s is located next to the ISKCON of Houston Center, at 1320 West 34th Street in the Heights.
